Cost-efficient R&S ZND Vector Network Analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz for Uni- and Bidirectional Measurements
Users in RF component production have to maintain high throughput while carrying out S parameter measurements on antennas and filters. Rohde & Schwarz developed the R&S ZND for this testing requirement — an attractively priced vector network analyzer that is easy to operate.
Munich – The new R&S ZND vector network analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz features two test ports, and the base unit is designed for unidirectional measurements from 100 kHz to 4.5 GHz. Its easy-to-use options provide for flexible upgrades. The frequency range can be extended to 8.5 GHz, plus the instrument can be equipped for bidirectional measurements up to 4.5 GHz or 8.5 GHz. These functions can be locally activated.
The R&S ZND is perfect for production line measurements such as characterization of passive mobile phone components. The analyzer enables users to easily measure S-parameters such as S11 on antennas or S21 on filters. The favorably priced, easy-to-operate instrument is also ideal for training purposes. The R&S ZND offers a specified dynamic range of up to 120 dB and a specified power sweep range of up to 48 dB. Options for time domain measurements, general purpose interface bus (GPIB) and a parts handler interface (handler I/O) are also available.
The analyzer's large 30 cm (12.1") touchscreen and intuitive user interface make it especially easy to configure measurements and analyze results. All instrument functions are accessible in no more than three operating steps via the soft panel. A toolbar and drag and drop functionality allow users to configure the R&S ZND very quickly, and touchscreen tabs make it simple to switch between instrument setups. Traces and channels can be arranged in any desired combination, enabling users to display results in a clear and straightforward manner even for complex measurements.
With the R&S ZND vector network analyzer, Rohde & Schwarz is expanding its Value Instruments portfolio of attractively priced, high-quality T&M equipment. The instrument is now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
